Stans By Me

Central Asia is the hot new travel destination. Curious to see what all the fuss is about? Join intrepid traveler, Ged Gillmore, as he journeys with an unlikely group of characters on a whirlwind tour through the five ‘Stans – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. * Prepare yourself to come face to face with mesmerizing landscapes and striking citadels that look like sets from Star Wars and Game of Thrones. * Learn about ancient rituals such as goat-pulling and bride-stealing that are still practiced today. * Visit floating mountains, singing dunes, sunken forests and bejeweled cities so beautiful they are almost impossible to describe. Along the way you’ll encounter yurt erections, bullet trains and enemy Silk Road travel agents. You’ll learn how a baby’s first steps are celebrated in Kyrgyzstan. You’ll become acquainted with the life-and-death importance of etiquette in a Khan’s palace. And you’ll be gently reminded that people – even those on a seemingly boring bus tour – are rarely what they seem. 'Stans By Me' is a hilarious Central Asia travel memoir, full of fascinating characters, magnificent monuments and curious customs – all told with Gillmore’s deadpan British wit. If you enjoy the offbeat travel tales of Bill Bryson, David Sedaris, J. Maarten Troost or Will Ferguson, you’ll definitely get a kick out of 'Stans By Me'. ** PRAISE FOR 'STANS BY ME' ** 'What a journey, told with humor and great descriptive writing.'

Inspiring writing.’
